(( steve )) so while you may be paying your fair share when it comes to bridge tolls or fastrack there are some people cheating the system and costing taxpayers millions per year, but watch out. there's people running lights, driving drunk and you worried about my licence being covered people have figured out so many ways to alter their license plates, often to avoid red light cameras, fastrak and license plate readers. one way
is to cover the plates the citation is for the license cover you can't have any type of cover over your license plates.san mateo county sheriff's office patols the streets of san carlos , they are looking for covered or altered license platesyou see the loss of reflectivity here and the reason is simple the city installed plate readers like this on the roads that enter and leave san carlos they only read the rear plates the plate readers are being credited for catching a bad guy who is suspected of 3 or 4 home burgleries siren so now if you are rolling through san carlos with paper plates the thing that is going on now is where having a big push because (i'm not say this is you) but a lot of people will cover their plates, take their plates off obbscure the plates to avoid volations tolls and so forth we have additional people on today looking for such violationsand oh boy were they out there in fact this driver actually had plates issued to the truckthe plates were issued and they were issued over a month ago i
tried to talk to the driver are you filming (always filming) im not releasing any information to be on the be on the air (well i don't actually need your permission but thank you) we where not in a public place this is a private place) laughter is this your proerty no stanley then we are in public then someone who represented the property stepped in you guys are fine no problem at all enjoy your dayif you're rolling through with altered plates you're goinbg to need to get them fixed the funny thing is most drivers calm its just wear ann tear of the plates but look at this on many of the cars, the sam exact plate the read is damaged and the front is in percect conditions.. how do you explain that falicia can i get you to sign yea you (censored) rediculas you guys gonna find something better to do than to fine sonone over some bull(censored) btw way it's only a fix-it ticket, unless the officer can prove you intentally altered the plates .then it jumps to a felony. in san carlos stanley roberts kron 4 news (steve) our top story tonight... as the
